[D] [Em] [B] .
[A] [D] .
Out in the West [Em] Texas town of El [A] Paso I fell [D] in love with a Mexican girl.
Night time would find me [Em] in Rose's Cantina [A] Music would play and Felina [D] would whirl.
Blacker than night [Em] were the eyes of Felina [A] Wicked and evil while [D] casting a spell .
My love was deep for [Em] this Mexican maid [A] I was in love [D] but in vain I could tell.
One [G] night a wild little cowboy came in Wild as the West [Dm] Texas wind.
[D] .
Dancing and daring a drink he was sharing With wicked Felina the [G] girl that I loved.
So in anger [D] I challenged his right For [Em] the love of this maiden.
[A] Down with his hand for [D] the gun that he wore .
My challenge was answered [G] in less than a heartbeat [A] A handsome young stranger lay [D] dead on the floor .
Just for a moment [Em] I stood there in [A] silence Shocked by [B] the foul evil [A] deed I [D] had done.
Many thoughts raced [Em] through my mind as I stood [A] there I had [D] but one chance and that was to run.
Out [G] through the back door of Rose's I ran Out where the horses [Dm] were [D] tied .
I caught a good one it looked like it could run Up on its back in a way [G] I did [Em].
Just [A] as fast [D] as I could from the West [Em] Texas town of El Paso [A] Back to the [G] [D] badlands of New Mexico.
Back in El Paso [Em] my life would be worthless [A] Everything's gone in life [G] nothing [D] is left.
It's been so long [Em] since I've seen the young maid [A] My love [D] is stronger than my fear of death .
[G] I saddle up and away I did go Riding alone in [D] the dark.
Maybe .
tomorrow a bullet may find me Tonight nothing's worse than this pain [G] in my heart.
[A] And at last here [D] I am on the hill [Em] Overlooking El Paso [A] I can see [D] Rose's cantina below .
My love is strong [Em] and it pushes me onward [A] Down up the hill [F#m] to Felina [D] I go .
Off to my right [Em] I see five mounted [A] cowboys To my left right a dozen [D] or more.
Shouting and shooting [Em] I can't let them catch [A] me I have to make it to [D] Rose's back door.
[G] Something is dreadfully wrong for I feel A deep burning [Dm] pain in my soul.
[D] Though I am trying to stay in the saddle I'm getting weary unable [G] to ride.
[A] But my love for [D] Felina is strong and [Em] I rise where I'm bound Though I am [D] weary I can't stop to rest.
I see the white puff [Em] of smoke from the rifle [A] I feel the bullet go deep in [F#m] my [D] chest.
From out of [Em] nowhere Felina has found [A] me Kissing my cheek and she [D] kneels by my side .
Bradled by two [Em] loving arms that I'll die [A] for One little [G] kiss and [F#m] Felina [G#m] goodbye .
[D] .
